Print Barcodes in Crystal Reports

SAP Crystal Reports + Azalea = barcodes

Azalea’s barcode software packages include two simple options for building barcodes directly into your Crystal Reports project.

Custom Barcode Functions

The first option is to use the custom functions we've designed just for use within Crystal. Each custom function is tailored to a specific barcode type to ensure accuracy and ease of use. Read more about the barcode functions and how to use them here.

User Function Library

Another way to create barcodes in your Crystal Reports documents is to use the Azalea User Function Library (UFL) that integrates our barcodes into your project.The UFL adds the start and stop bars and any necessary check digits, creating barcodes from your data. It's a two part process:

• Pass your data to be barcoded to our UFL.

• Format the returned strings of text into one of our barcode fonts.

VoilĂ !

The Azalea UFL for Crystal Reports is made up of two custom barcode .dlls called u25azalea.dll and u212azalea.dll. The UFL and a set of nine different Azalea Code 39 fonts are bundled with Crystal Reports 2008 & Crystal Reports 2011.

For other barcode types like Code 128, UPC, EAN, Interleaved 2 of 5 and others, the UFL comes included in each of our software packages. If you'd like to install the UFL manually, follow the directions below.

32-bit UFL

• For standard installation, save the two .dlls to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports

• For .NET framework, save the .dlls to:
4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86

64-bit UFL

• For standard installation, save the two .dlls to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports

• For .NET framework, save the .dlls to:
4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64

Use this free sample code to set up your report workflow; you'll need the barcode fonts that come with our software packages when you're ready to save and print the final barcodes.

Older Versions

Older versions of our software and of Crystal Reports utilized a 32-bit UFL with different .dll file names: u2lbcode.dll and barcode.dll. This UFL functions only with older versions of Crystal Reports. If you'd like to install this older UFL manually, follow the directions below.

Older version 32-bit UFL

• For Windows XP & Windows 7 save the .dlls to:
C:\windows\system32

• For Vista save the .dlls to:
C:\ProgramFiles\BusinessObjects\Common\3.5\bin

• For Windows NT, Win 2000 or Windows ME save the dlls to:
C:\winnt\system32
